"Drift” was commissioned by Ballet Met for their 30th Anniversary. For this celebration, the ohio based company decided to bring choreographers from all over the world in for a single day and have them create a work a work that would be presented to an audience in the evening. Alex Ketley deeply believed in this project because it felt like a company that was taking a risk and also believing in revealing the process of creation to the audience. Alex went with nothing prepared and had five hours to create the new work. Working this Intensely under this construct proved to be very rewarding. The piece is a double duet, created for four outstanding dancers in the company.
